The publication presents detailed recordings of the Old Kingdom tomb of Ptahhotep I, a tomb noted to be 'the most beautiful in Saqqara' by one of its early excavators. Unlike earlier publications, the monograph includes 150 colored and detailed photographs, as well as high resolution line drawings showcasing the quality of the tomb's scenes and its exceptional architectural plan. Also included is a discussion on the tomb owner and a detailed analysis of the scenes, with some previously unknown erasures and modifications attesting to their intentional alteration by the ancient Egyptians.
